Celebrities: Chikka with Dimples Romana and Melissa Ricks

When Dimples Romana is not busy antagonizing Agua Bendita, and Melissa Ricks is not busy defending her love life guess what they get their hands on?

Dimples and Mel told me they like using the new version of Chikka because it lets them I.M. for free. Who knew even celebs like free stuff? They use it to keep in touch with their family and friends. Melissa Ricks says she stays at home during her free time and just loves to sit in front of her laptop - just like most of us.

The two Chikka endorsers also shared how they use the Internet to find out the latest fashion trends. While they're at it, they can easily use Chikka to send SMS from their computers.

According to Dennis Mendiola, "Chikka is more relevant than ever. We observe for example that a lot of casual messaging previously exchanged via text has shifted to the social networks. Our latest version is being released, combining the cool convenience of sending an IM message when one is on-line with the personal warmth, immediacy even urgency of receiving a message as text, instantly read on ones phone.”

Promoting even higher utility for the community, the new Chikka version features P1.00 replies during off-peak hours when a lot of Global Filipinos are driving message traffic to friends and loved ones mobiles in the Philippines. Unlimited text packages akin to popular UNLI packages being offered by Philippine telcos are also now available all day.

It is also interoperable with Google Talk while Chikka is working on partnering with other instant messaging applications to make it easier for users to keep in touch.
